What you are for me--By Gert W. Knop--Germany

What you are for me

You are the sunlight,
to lighten my face.
You are my beacon
shining through haze.
You are the light breeze
of clear summer's air,
with the scent of flowers
caressing my hair,
You are the song
of birds in spring.
You are the music
which makes me
You are the sound,
reaching my heart.
You are my Love,
nothing can tear us apart

Gert W. Knop, born in 1943, studies art and tropical agriculture in Germany and Scotland (University of Edinburgh). He has lived in many different countries and writes mainly in German, English and Spanish. He currently resides in Zittau (Saxony), Germany.

    How wonderful it is to find someone who makes you feel this way! Enjoyed the poem very much, especially the vivid imagery. So nice to see you posting again. I may be coming to Europe this fall. Would love to meet up with you if I do. Big hugs, Carolyn

  4. Thank you, Connie Marcum Wong, for the following comment--

    You are a master at writing with brevity, as each word
    expresses in depth succinctly and passionately what
    others would need far more lines to express. I am a
    fan of your poetry. I have one of your chapbooks. This
    is outstanding! Aloha, Connie

  5. Very nice poem, Gert. Soothing and melodic. Thank you for sharing. Continued blessings!
